The race series will again include Team Time Trial (TTT), Road Race (RR) and Criterium (crit) events, but it will be even bigger this year with over 300 collegiate cyclists from about forty schools.

As was the case last year, many volunteers will be needed. If you’re free that weekend and can lend a hand, please see below for details on how to get involved.

The Northern Indiana Mountain Bike Association (NIMBA) will be having a Trail Build day at Bendix Woods, this Sunday, 3/25, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and they are looking for helping hands.

If you’d like to participate, enter the park through the gate off of SR2. The gate is just west of the Bosch facility. They will meet at the Otahnagon Shelter area.

They have all the tools needed to build the trail, and volunteers just need to bring a pair of gloves to help out. They will have water and lunch for everyone. Spring time is the best time to build trail so come out an give them a hand!

If you want to get a better understanding of what they are doing when building the trail, check out the following video:
